Connecticut Social Work Continuing Education

Welcome Connecticut Social Workers!

Free State Social Work is approved as a continuing education provider by the Association of Social Work Boards Approved Continuing Education Program (provider #1235) and the National Board for Certified Counselors (provider #6605).  We are also approved by the Kansas Behavioral Sciences Regulatory Board (provider 10-001) and the Florida Board of Clinical Social Work, Marriage and Family Therapy and Mental Health Counseling (CE Provider # 50-13565).

Does the Connecticut Board accept courses from ASWB-approved continuing education providers?

Yes.  Continuing education should be related to the practice of social work.

How many hours can I earn with on-line CE courses?

Not less than five hours shall be earned through in-person or synchronous online education with opportunities for live interaction; and not more than ten hours shall be earned through asynchronous online education, distance learning or home study. For purposes of this section, “synchronous online education” means live online classes that are conducted in real time, “asynchronous online education” means a program where the instructor, learner and other participants are not engaged in the learning process at the same time, there is no real-time interaction between participants and instructors and the educational content is created and made available for later consumption.

How Can I Get Started?

All of our courses are $5.99 per credit hour.  We also offer an unlimited package. One year of unlimited courses is $74.99 and two years of unlimited courses are $124.99.  Click here for more information about how to get started or you can browse our complete course catalog.

Where Can I Review Connecticut Social Work Continuing Education Requirements?

Please remember that we have done our best to research your state’s licensing guidelines. Licensing regulations can change frequently including guidelines about how many CEUs you can earn on-line. Most jurisdictions require a certain number of hours in ethics and other areas of practice. The final authority for approving any continuing education activity rests with your state board. Even those states that endorse the ACE program may have exceptions in terms of the courses that they will accept. It is ultimately your responsibility to understand the licensing regulations in your state.

Does Free State Social Work offer Connecticut Social Work CEUs? Trainings? Contact Hours? Credit Hours?

Different jurisdictions have different definitions.  For some jurisdictions, the term CEU consists of ten credit hours.  At Free State Social Work, we offer continuing education credit hours and we estimate that each credit hour will require one hour of reading.
